I have been lucky my hedgehog has had a few ticks so is very distinguishable 😀, however the ticks have dropped off now and I’m struggling to know if I have more than 1. The black and white camera pictures in the box make it harder. Sometimes there are 2 visits within an hour surely this must be 2 separate hogs? I feed some ‘wet’ dog food pouch and a dish of Go-cat and the wet food goes every night and about half the biscuit. Is there any way to tell if it’s male or female please?
